Madison High School
Grateful to: Teacher

The scholarship and breadth of curiosity of three teachers in particular have quite obviously inspired my daughters. It's a delight to see these teachers cajoling the kids to higher levels of work. They also give much to the after school culture of non athletically driven kids.

The average teachers are better than the good teachers I had back in the day. The substitutes, however, are pretty hit and miss. The good teachers are exceptionally good.

Amount of homework: Not enough

My daughter does lots of homework, which is expected with AP classes. I'm surprised at how little the non AP classes require.

Develops grit: Agree

Oregon has a bad retention and graduation rate. I do not think this is because of the schools so much as the parents. The actively parented kids perform quite well through their own grit and because they are encouraged by the teachers, I'd say Madison does develop these traits.

Develops respect: Agree

Because the staff earns respect, it gets respect. Seeing this in action develops respect in the students.


Madison High School
Develops empathy: Agree

The great diversity of this school develops a "people are people" empathy to all races, cultures, socio-economic strata.

Develops honesty: Agree

The staff has expectations of honesty, of course. The staff strives for fairness. The incredible diversity of students shows that the staff considers all cultures capable of good integrity. When unfairness is exhibited, students feel slighted and learn that they prefer fairness.

So many AP and Art offerings, inspiring teaching staff, numerous after school activities (my daughters particularly enjoyed the open and inclusive theater department). An excellent education with many extras.

My daughter just finished her freshman year. Her teachers were all very personable, responsive and complimentary of her when we saw them at conferences. She had a rough month and missed 9 days of school from illness and her teachers were helpful, concerned and allowed her the time to catch back up. She's finished the year maintaining a 4.0 GPA and is looking forward to sophomore year!!!! We're very happy with Madison!

Madison has a great staff to support and nurture students want to achieve more. The athletics department has seen some personel changes in the past years and with these hope to have break out seasons in the 2015-16 school year. I love this school and the Madison community, that works deligently to continuously improve itself.
